Interlinked Product Creation Processes

The lecture Interlinked Product Creation Processes teaches students of the Master's program that processes are omnipresent in engineering sciences and play a decisive role in product creation.

Location: L4|02 1+2

Time: On Wednesdays from 08:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

Semester: summer semester

Lectures during the summer semester 2020

The courses of the DiK will be held as online teaching in the summer semester 2020. The lectures will be digitally broadcasted and supplemented by additional digital materials such as demonstrations and exercises.

Online teaching starts in week 17 (from 20.04.2020) and takes place on the weekdays and at the times specified in the schedule (see TUCaN). The available room details for the individual dates in TUCaN represent the original attendance planning and will be replaced by the online teaching. The technical access to the online teaching takes place via Moodle.

The DiK broadcasts the lectures in the summer semester 2020 via livestream. You will find a link to attend the live lecture in the respective Moodle course of the event in the corresponding week. The link leads you to the video platform Youtube, which is used for the live stream.

This lecture is for students of the master program, which imparts the fact that processes are ubiquitous in mechanical engineering. Processes are a key success factor, especially in product development. Within the scope of the lecture, characteristic processes are identified based on process theory, and a reference model for product development and specific methods are presented to meet the process objectives. Students should be able to understand the processes in product development. They should be familiar with the main work methods, and they should develop skills to recognize the progress in processes and to control process flow. Process modeling -analysis -simulation and optimization are important competencies that have to be mastered.

Learning targets:

On successful completion of this module, students should be able to:

  • Describe the product creation process
  • Identify process aims and specify expected process results systematically
  • Configure sub-processes and the link between them
  • Apply methods of process modelling, analysis, simulation, and optimization
  • Evaluate acquired process results.
